Onychomycosis of yellow toenails is a contagious condition that can be spread by direct contact with contaminated objects or hands. It is not hereditary, but some families are more likely to develop it than others. Some genes, however, protect against this fungal infection. People with immune dysfunction are also more likely to develop this condition. This includes people undergoing long-term steroid therapy and those who are malnourished.
Patients with onychomycosis can take oral antimycotic to treat the infection. The most common ones include terbinafine and itraconazole. This drug works by killing the fungi in the nail bed. It has several potential side effects, including headaches, nausea, diarrhea, and decreased sense of taste. Terbinafine is not recommended for people with liver problems or those who have a history of heart disease. It may also react with drugs such as quinidine, pimozide, or dofetilide.
If you suspect that you have yellow nails, the first thing you should do is to see a doctor. A doctor can confirm your diagnosis by conducting a physical exam. However, it can be difficult to differentiate this condition from other diseases and trauma.

These medicines are to be taken for several months, and your healthcare provider may check for possible side effects. Some of these drugs may affect the liver and interact with other medications.
A fungal infection may also cause yellowing of the nail. This is more common in fingernails than in toenails. It is also more common when a person wears tight-fitting shoes or experiences trauma to the nail plate. The most common type of fungus responsible for yellow nails is a member of the Trichophyton family. An infection of this fungus may cause thickening of the nail plate, deformity, and yellowing of the nail.
